It's been a little under two years since the Mancunian duo dropped 'Naaki' on Truesoul's VA compilation, giving label followers the first taste of their classy sound. The duo's imitable knack for producing groove-driven dancefloor heat make them a dream fit for Adam Beyer's daytime sets and when the label boss warmed up Drumcode Festival playing B2B with Ida Engberg on day 2, it was OC & Verde's 'Cloak & Dagger' that highlighted the early shift.
The perfect primer, 'Cloak' builds anticipation in spades thanks to its slick mix of exotic chords, tribal chants and incessant bass melody that runs throughout. By contrast, 'Dagger' is intended as the stirring closer to a party, marked by swirling synth effects, pads and a dramatic melody line.
